Visitors to Stand E190 will be able to see laminations that are used in products that include electric vehicles, renewables, life protection devices and aerospace systems. The company can manufacture loose, bonded or interlock laminations, T-segments and ultra-thin components from its 45,000 sq ft facility in the West Midlands.

“Our expertise has even stretched to providing components for the PD-100 by FLIR, a personal reconnaissance system with a rotor diameter of just 12 mm,” explains Graham Allison, technical sales manager at Brandauer. “The so-called ‘Black Hornet’ is a tiny drone used by law enforcement, the military, and search and rescue teams, and we have played a crucial role in making it a reality.

“It’s stories like this that we are looking to tell at Southern Manufacturing, a show that has proven hugely successful for us in the past,” he adds. “We’ll have our technical experts on hand to discuss electrical steel lamination requirements, as well as a number of applications where our components are being used.”

Brandauer will also be displaying EloPin, a press-fit product that allows the solderless connection of terminal pins to a PCB. Although easy to insert, EloPin is designed to have a high push-out force that ensures high mechanical stability and a secure, gas-tight connection. The product also has high elastic recovery to prevent accidental breakage.Typical applications include engine compartment accessories, over-moulded hybrid parts, vehicle comfort systems, driver assistance technology, and in-vehicle network and infotainment systems.

Allison concludes: “We have just sealed a near £1 million order for EloPin and are currently working through a number of quotes to supply customers in five different sectors who also want to take advantage of this technology.”
